Create a new native mobile app in minutes using your existing web content!
When it comes to showing off your brand, connecting with users and delivering a better mobile experience, nothing delivers like a native app. As opposed to using a web app or displaying your web content in a mobile browser, native apps:
- Run on a specific hardware platform and operating system
- Can access the complete range of hardware and functionality of the user’s mobile device
- Can be downloaded from popular app stores like the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
While there’s no question that native apps are the best option for engaging and retaining users on mobile devices, they can be very costly and time consuming to develop, deploy and maintain. But with WebConverted, you can convert your existing website to a fully functional native app with only minimal web development, saving time and expense in the process. Read on to learn about six reasons you should choose WebConverted to launch a stunning, immersive native app.
1. Build a Native iOS or Android App Entirely Online
When you use WebConverted to create your native app, all you need to get started is your website URL! Within hours, the WebConverted team will build a native app that displays your web content.
Whether you’re looking to launch an app quickly to test a business idea, or in need of an enterprise-level support and maintenance plan, WebConverted can provide the services you need.
2. WebConverted Saves You Time and Development Costs
Typically, developing a native app for both iOS and Android is very time consuming and requires businesses to hire additional staff or engage external developers. Plus, building apps for both Apple iOS and Android demands effectively double the effort and requires different skill sets. Not only can this mean lengthy development times, it also means high development costs.
In 2022, designing a full-featured native app for both iOS and Android devices from scratch can cost your business tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. This doesn’t even factor in the time and costs associated with maintaining and managing these apps to ensure ongoing compatibility. With WebConverted, you can leverage your existing web content and design and create a fully functional native app in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the cost.
3. Design a Beautiful Native App That Aligns With Your Brand
Both Apple and Google have numerous design rules, guidelines and best practices to follow when designing brand elements for your app. Rather than negotiate this process on your own, WebConverted makes it easy to put a unique, brand-oriented stamp on your app using custom app icons, an app splash screen, and in-app theme colors.
4. Add Native Features With Web Development
For users, the primary benefit of native apps is the fact that they can access the hardware and functionality of the mobile devices, leading to a wide range of app features and possibilities. Typically, web wrapper apps do not provide full native functionality and adding native features to such an app requires extensive development in iOS and Android native code.
- Send push notifications to users
- Enable social login
- Access a device’s camera, GPS, microphone and media player
- Enable in-app purchases, video chat, offline downloads
- And much, much more
5. We Will Publish and Launch Your App Successfully
Properly preparing and publishing your app to both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store is a highly involved, multi-step process that’s important to get right. Your app can be rejected by the app stores based on their guidelines and you’ll need to prepare app store listing metadata and app to ensure it will be easy for users to find and download your app.
At WebConverted, we make app publishing as easy and as seamless as possible. Our Publishing Team will publish apps to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, as well as private app stores. We’ve published over 2,500 apps with a 97% approval rate to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Our team will complete the publishing process end-to-end, including the preparation of all app store metadata and screenshots.
6. Following Launch, We Help You Easily Maintain Your Apps
After your app is published, ongoing compatibility updates and regular maintenance is a must to ensure compatibility with the latest iOS and Android releases and to add additional features. If you’re planning on launching a native app for both iOS and Android, this ongoing maintenance and updates can be time consuming and costly.

We ensure your apps remain compatible with future iOS/Android devices and operating system updates. which enables you to maintain your apps without requiring any in-house iOS or Android developers.
